Gives a good impression. The location is ideal for families and tourists visiting Calgary or going forth to drive towards the rockies. The lady who served us at breakfast was also very smiling and accommodative and understood our needs as vegetarians. We did have a bit of trouble finding the place on the GPS when we were driving back at... More

This is a good hotel, the staff were very friendly and super helpful. The C-train station is almost right across from the hotel, which makes it very easy to get downtown without having to worry about traffic or parking. The rooms are a good size, could do with some updating though, especially the carpet in the room needed some cleaning.... More

Nothing fancy but it's clean, great value for the money and great location. The Tower section of the hotel has an elevator which opens onto the motel section as well so if you're staying in the motel you will have elevator access. The room rate includes a continental breakfast and the food is replenished throughout the breakfast time period so... More

Ideal location, but many hotels in this village, close to trains, University and McMahon Stadium. Spend a little more and get some comfort too. Room was a little stinky on arrival, something was dripping into the bathroom, and the heat didn't work. They moved us to another 'suite' with tiny kitchenette. Better, but still obviously a discount motel. Breakfast was... More

My colleague and I stayed here while at a convention in Calgary. We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the C-train which we took downtown.
